PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

THE ORIGIN OF PUSHKAR

One day there emanated from his mansion ear-splitting sounds, when all ran inside to find out the reason, and to their surprise, learnt that it was due to the falling of lotus from his hand, which he was invariably holding since his settlement here. Brahma then narrated the story of one dreadful demon by name Vajranabha, who was causing
incalculable harm to the children and whom he killed with his lotus chanted and fell came to be known as the Pushkar Thirth The chanted lotus soon after killing the awful demon rebounded at three places, at every one of them water gushed forth from the earth. These three places are lying within a circuit of 6 Km and they go by the names, of Jyesta, Madhyama, and the Kanishlha Pushkar. In oath of thorn the images of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar were installed respectively and are worshipped since then.
